As there seem to be no answers to this, I assume it is still an issue.
I don't know if this helps, but here goes. I did a bit of digging and found that Sync Services on the Mac uses something called the Truth, which is the central point of reference for Sync Services. (All sorts of fun to be had here, e.g. your Mac can't handle the Truth
- and for 5 points the movie was...?)
Anyway, moving on. I'd suggest you backup your Mac and your WM6, then decide who knows the real truth: iCal or your WM6's Calendar/Contacts. If you think you want to keep your device's version of events, delete your iCal files (~/Library/Application Support/iCal
). Otherwise, delete your pim.vol on your device. Then, as the Truth doesn't know the truth (sorry, couldn't resist
), you need to delete your Sync Services. WARNING!!
This is serious stuff! Your Sync Services folder contains syncing information about ALL
your devices and the data that you sync with them. If you delete this folder all your data syncing and devices set up will also be reset, leaving you with an "as new" SyncMate, as well as iSync and anything else that uses Sync Services! (Don't worry too much though, the Sync Services folder gets recreated as new!)
Still want to carry on? I only sync Address Book (WM6 -> Mac one way only, for now!) and iCal (both ways), so I don't care about blowing away Sync Services files. Here's how you do it: delete ~/Library/Application Support/SyncServices/Local
. Voilà! Now you can make the Truth what you want it to be... OK OK, I'll stop now!...
